THE Lions and the Euros will race the Eagles and Roos at Foxhall Stadium tomorrow night.

A plethora of young talent will be on show in a meeting, which has been changed from a four-team tournament to a two-team meeting.

With the likes of Tai Woffinden, James Wright, Travis McGowan and Chris Schramm on view, as well as many up-and-coming foreign riders, there is likely to be plenty of exciting racing on offer in Foxhall Stadium's penultimate meeting of the season.

“It's a chance for us to see a few uncontracted riders at our track and we certainly have one eye on the 2009 season while we watch some of these boys,” Witches skipper Chris Louis said.

“It will be interesting to see how some of them go up against the more experienced riders like Tai Woffinden, Travis McGowan and Chris Schramm.

“It is not proving a cheap exercise getting many of them over here to race, but with one eye on next season, we are looking forward to watching some of them.”

The Witches final meeting of 2008 comes next Thursday, October 23, with the 16-Lapper.

Already finalised to ride are Eddie Kennett, Rory Schlein, Troy Batchelor, Scott Nicholls and hopefully Piotr Swiderski.
